Can't run jobs as root.  Use a regular user.

You only need to run torque.setup once.  After that, just make changes
interactively in qmgr.

You don't need this.  Unset it.

This should be /var/spool/torque/server_name.

pbs_iff needs to be setuid root and it should have been after the
install.  How did you install TORQUE?

chown root:root /usr/local/sbin/pbs_iff
chmod 755 /usr/local/sbin/pbs_iff
chmod u+s /usr/local/sbin/pbs_iff
